Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Hey, first tab I've done and it's more accurate than the one currently up chords-wise (as of writing), thought
I'd do the acoustic chord variation though because it sounds so nice on guitar. Props to the other tab for
the chorus chords though (Taylor Swiftfan). Props also to Lisa for writing such a beautiful song.

Structure:

Verse = E, A. On 'E' Move middle finger from 2nd fret on the A string to the 2nd fret on the E string to get 
the third (I don't know what) chord she plays. The A ('spin me round the room like a') is played using an E 
pattern barring the 5th fret. Back to E for ('marionette'). For the E bits you strum down once on the first
3-4 strings (i.e 6, 5, 4, 3...), pause, then strum up on the last 2-3 strings. You then move into the E 
variation on which you only strum the 6,5,4,3 strings. Strum down-up like: 1-2, 1-2, 1-2, 1-2 then back to E.
The alternative is just to use the F#m as apparently used in the album version instead of the E variation.

Bridge = C#m i.e Am barring fourth fret, but then she moves the barring down to 3rd, then perhaps again? I 
personally can't reach that far down but I'm shit at guitar. The Bb half diminished sounds right though.

Chorus = as the other tab put it, really simple: B, F#m, A, E.

Just to be clear I'm going to call the E variation 'E(var)' and it's like this:

e|-x-------------|
B|-x-------------|
G|-1-------------|
D|-2-------------|
A|-0-------------|
E|-2-------------|


[Intro]

(E, E(var) x2)


[Verse 1]

E         E(var)
Pirouette
         E      E(var)
A single step
             A
Oh won't you spin me round the room
       E          E(var)
Like a marionette


[Interlude]

(E, E(var) x2)


[Verse 2]

           E        E(var)
And lonely maestro
        E          E(var)
Spin me real slow
               A
Oh I just need something to get me through
    E            E(var)
The thick of it


[Pre-Chorus]

           C#m
And we had everything
C#m (-1bar)        C#m (-2bar)    Bb half diminished 
From time to time
            A
Yeah we had everything
From time to time


[Chorus]

B        F#m         A   E
Come lay down in the wa- ter
B         F#m      A     E
We're all sons and daugh -ters
B         F#m         A      E
Rest your head by the alter, -er/oh
B        F#m         A   E
Come lay down in the wa- ter


Rest of the song follows the same pattern.
